MARYVILLE, Mo. — The city of Maryville unveiled a first look at concept drawings of the Thomson Splash ‘N’ Play Friday.
The Splash ‘N’ Play, announced in November, will be located on a vacant property near the northwest corner of Highway V and south Munn Avenue. The park is expected to feature a large, zero-depth splash pad with spray features, musical play attractions, a restroom facility, shade structures, benches and landscaping. More features could be added after the park has been developed.
The free-admission park project will be funded by Dick and Kay Thomson, who have been working with officials from the city and Maryville Parks and Recreation on the design of the park. The Thomsons provided the city with a deed to the land in December, and the City Council will decide next week whether to accept the property. MPR will maintain the park once it has been constructed.
Ultimately, the Thomsons will provide all the funding for the construction of the park, which could open sometime this summer.
